* * SHORT TAILS: Tailess or stubby tailed cats like the Manx have developed from a spontaneous mutation, a gene that eventually became common on the Isle of Man because of the limited genetic diversity.
What a cutie! I love the lynx tipping on the ears and longer cheek fur, it really gives the cat a wild look. (Kind of a relief to know that their short tail is due to their genetics, and not docking.) -- Like my very own bobcat!
